Ms. Parotti is really easy and nice. Her class can be really boring, but you can learn out of the book. You should always pay attention the day before a tests. She tells the concepts you need to know, and gives examples. It helps prepare for the test and gives a mini lesson if you didn't pay attention (most people don't listen.)

My classmates actually bullied HER. She's a pushover, but that doesn't mean she'll let you text and stuff.
I went through the whole year just learning out of the book during class (she gives you the option of either listening to her lecture or going straight to the homework) and got around a 92%. Sometimes she makes things harder than they need to be.
However, she is very nice and really tries to help you with your questions.

Mrs. Parotti honestly tries to teach you, the only problem is she does not know math herself, MRS. PAROTTI SHOULD NOT BE A MATH TEACHER!

i had her for one semester of algebra two and even though she talks to us like we're little kids, i actually understood what she was saying. A good teacher overall. Her tests aren't easy but if you take notes and listen and do your homework you should do pretty well on her test =)

she seems really easy but because she's so nice it makes you slack off a lot in her class and get really behind so stay on top of things!

I though Parotti was a good teacher she helped me understand Math a whole lot better and gave really good notes. But at times she will make a mistake here and there but who doesnt.

She's such a liar. Her finals are NOT easy. It only drops your grade so don't plan on relying on the final to raise your grade.

god, can someone teach this woman how to teach. she was really easy in geo and all, but if you have her for alg2, you're screwed. does not know/understand how to teach alg2. i'm not saying this because i'm one of those people who are doing poorly (so then i'd be bias... i have an A-). but she CANT teach alg2. if you have her for geo, you're lucky. if you have her for alg2, you're screwed-she CANT teach Alg2-half the people in her class have C's, and shes not doing anything to help them. uhave2learnfrombook

A very nice teacher, her lectures are boring though. Easy overall, and she lets you do ur homework instead of listening to her so thats a big thumbs up. I slept through her class all semester but that was because I already know all this due to tutoring.

Listen to her lectures! They really really help. A lot of people don't pay attention in class, but they people who do have an A in the class. Overall, good teacher.. Don't test her patience.

I came to her in 3nd semester, and i earned an A in her class, although her class was easy, she helped you when you needed help. her lessons were to teach you the basics, not like the honors class, she needs more control

She is intent on teaching students, but her methods is horrible. She is too easy, and too much of a pushover so that many students fall asleep in class. Her lectures aren't very good, as students lose interest quickly.
